Oh well - I'm here to say, well done Elijah and James! Great show. Interesting to hear what Logan and Thomas had to say.

Ahh, I see what you mean.

I guess this is just one of those scenarios where you have to remember, it's a video game. Some things are just simpler when you do.

I'm not listening "La, la la, la, la"

Oh, I completely understand that and am fine with it. Its the contradiction I find strange. Either stick to the story or dont. And if your not going to then dont make a big deal about it for one specific ship.

Some folks argued that the NX-class is too old and useless in terms of viability in 2409/2410. The fact that the C-Store specifically said that it was a new ship based off of old design specs did nothing to decry the naysayers. It was ugly, with page long posts about why a ship could or could not be made useful in the modern era. Examples were tossed around supporting both sides of the argument over the course of about 12 months, before things finally died down.

The NX supporters asked for a new ship based off of the old design principles many times since then, with no word from Logan or anyone else from Cryptic as to their own stance on the issue.
Then let me pull an example from History. The U.S.S. Missouri was a WWII Destroyer that also happened to serve in Korea, was mothballed until 1984, during which time microprocessors were invented. It was pulled out of mothballs, refit with modern equipment, and served until 1992, when the fall of the Soviet Union made them no longer necessary, but the Iowa-class ships can be recommissioned should the need arise.

Well that's where you went wrong. By assuming what little "story" there is in game has any real coherence or thought put into. :p

If you're going to use history, please be good enough to get it correct.
The USS Missouri was a BATTLESHIP...not a tin can destroyer...
Big, BIG difference.

But I'd love the Dixon Hill sequence with a photonic tommygun. (Which I'm guessing would be a high rate of fire weapon that Borg adapt to more slowly.)
That the Borg Do Not addapt to is more wanted .

Presumably it would do kinetic damage, which the Borg don't adapt to at all.

I think they rely on the ships being low level to add to their rarity.

Also: 2409 styled NX-01? Definately!

I am willing to bet the First Contact reference is the space walk.
